You guys hear of Hanns·G moniter?

Post by Alathald » Tue Apr 24, 2007 10:45 am

I was on NewEgg, found an awesome sounding moniter from Hanns·G but I know nothing about moniter brands
I want something with a high contrast and low refresh for ~$300 and this seems to fit the bill...you guys know of any moniters that match the criteria? I'd like to buy it tonight cause S/H is free, whats your guys thoughts?
Heres the link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6824254020

Ya that's kinda what I've been running into, good specs but after so many people having issues with spectre, I'm kinda wary of the newer brands. The specs are much better than BenQ or ViewSonic but as you say, it's a newer brand...

I'm using one right now at work, model#HW191A, and I've got to say that I am extremely impressed with it. The image is sharp and clean and the picture is bright. I actually like this one better than my Samsung 913V. I do not have any problems recommending this monitor to others seeking to save some money without sacrificing quality.

I have the HW191D and I love it too. Absolutely great for the price I paid.

Hann G is a division of a huge Corp HannStar that made mainly OEM products for a lot of the major name brands out there. Hanns G is their own market brand they are now selling themselves. They have been in the LCD for more than a day or 2 now, going on close to 10 years.......... :shock:
HannStar Display was established in June 1998. We are specialized in the manufacturing of TFT-LCD products and these main applications are in notebook computer displays and desktop computer monitors.
HannStar Display now has three LCD fabrications and one LCM fabrication. Through technology transfer from Toshiba and Hitachi, HannStar acquired the state-of-the-art TFT-LCD manufacturing technology with the highest efficiency for mass production. Our customers include leading electronics companies both in Taiwan and overseas.

I know there are programs out there that cycle though different colors (like 1 every 5secs or so) I just forget what they are called, I'm sure I'll find something before the moniter shows though

Got the moniter a couple days ago, very impressed with it...not a single dead pix & it's quite, well...um...sleek I guess would be the word for it.

:drinkers: Thanks again for the feedback! I'm swimming in 22" glory! :finga:

I got a 19" widescreen made by Hans-G. There is no dead pixels, display is crisp, bright, however the viewing angle sucks.

I believe it was 17" as well...didn't take long to get use to it (1/2 hr tops).

I'll admit, as far as the viewing angle, it's no CRT or HDTV but its still a great moniter, especially for the price. I would definitely by Hanns·G in the future.
